Did anyone ever consider the possibility in the 2008 Breeders Cup Classic that given both's lifetime stats that both Ravens Pass and Henrythenavigator were both equally as good of colt's as Curlin? Or did everyone just take Jess Jackson's comment of "Curlin just didn't like a synthetic track" at face value? You know what they say, the "Great One's" can race and win over any surface. I guess that applies to everyone's horses except the two alleged "Great One's" that Jess Jackson owns. IMO.
I still think Go Between had a great shot here if he had gotten a different trip from Gomez. He was stuck on the rail (on a day when almost all winners rallied outside) and then had nowhere to go. Take a look at this video and see what you think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn2bnTeeIZk
